Just before the Judge is about to send Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani and Jason back to the Bad Place for eternity for collectively failing the tests she gave them, Michael, with Janet by his side, makes his way through the portal to the Judge's chamber, he who pleads their case by poking holes in the process which determines who goes where in the afterlife. The Judge is at least willing to listen to Michael. If Michael is able to come up with a solution, the four humans, led by Eleanor, want to go through whatever process and be sent to whatever place as a group. What Michael is eventually able to convince the Judge to do in the interim, unheard of within her tenure, still does not answer the question of where the four will eventually land in their eternity, Michael who places his faith in the four and what they have gone through since they first arrived in the neighborhood.

In a scene in this episode, Michael, played by Ted Danson
, acts as a bartender for Eleanor (Kristen Bell
). He throws a towel over his shoulder and leans against the bar to talk to her, a mannerism similar to his character Sam Malone from Cheers
(1982). See more
In the early episodes, it's established that Chidi speaks in his native French, and Eleanor can only understand him because there are no language barriers in 'The Good Place'. In the Season 2 finale, we see Eleanor and Chidi return to earth to continue living and Chidi speaks perfect English with an American accent. However, in the third season, Chidi explains that though he was born and raised in Senegal, he attended American schools and thus sounds American. See more
Hi, Jason. I love you.
Word. I've been avoiding telling you. My excuse was that I needed time to evaluate my complex feelings, but that was just a rationalization. This might be the last time I ever get to talk to you, so there it is: I love you. And I hereby stop avoiding the topic and rationalizing by saying the situation is complicated.
Or that my brain is grinding like a fork in a garbage disposal.
All right. Whatever. You're not really a part of this, Chidi.
